Australia & New Zealand Banking Group Ltd. raised €750 million through the issuance of fixed-rate bonds in the European wholesale debt capital markets.
The five-year bonds were priced at a spread of 15 basis points above the swap rate, with a yield of 0.643%.
The securities are considered sustainable development goals bonds. Proceeds from the issuance will fund ANZ loans and expenditures that support projects offering social, economic and environmental benefits, the bank said.
The Australian bank said it also recently increased its commitment to fund and facilitate low-carbon and sustainable solutions, lifting its original target of A$10 billion by 2020 to at least A$15 billion by 2020.
ANZ, HSBC, BNP and Barclays acted as joint book runners for the transaction.
